The two whales have been at the whale nursery since late last week, delighting onlookers who have taken advantage of the calm seas to catch a glimpse of the giants of the deep. 

Another adult whale was spotted swimming with the pair yesterday afternoon and there have been numerous sightings along the south-west coast.
